Subject: RE: Need input on youth in folk music
"The important thing for youth is for them to feel part of a community, and most importantly with people of their own age."

Not necessarily. Between school and teams, kids are with people their own age most of the time. A lot of kids would appreciate the attention and goodwill of an intelligent adult.

I have a friend who is a school official, and she says, "Anyone who will TALK to them!"

and a psychologist writing in the newspaper said, " For today's child, love is spelled T-I-M-E."

The person aged 20 - 30 who is looking for the right guy or girl is a different story.
